2012 Bond FAQ's

Written by

WHAT IS A BOND ELECTION?
The process where a public entity goes to the voters to ask for permission to borrow money for facilities.

WHEN WILL THE BOND ELECTION TAKE PLACE?
Tuesday, June 26th, 2012, in conjunction with the general primary election.

WHAT WILL BE ON THE BALLOT?
A request for voters to approve the issuance of bonds for 65 million dollars to be used for renovation and new school construction.

HOW MUCH WILL THE BOND COST EACH TAXPAYER?
The tax rate will remain the same; and therefore, property owners will see no increase in their tax rate. However, the ballot will show a $37.00 increase on a $193,000 residence, which would be the increase if the district was not restructuring current debt.

HOW CAN BOND MONEY BE USED?
Bond money can only be spent for new school construction, property for school sites, furnishings, and remodeling/renovation projects. Bond money cannot be used on operation expenses.

WHAT PROJECTS ARE PLANNED?
Money would be used for the replacement of:

West Weber Elementary (1928)
Wahlquist Jr. High (1942)
North Park Elementary (1959)
Marlon Hills Elementary (1960)
Club Heights Elementary (1942)
(Note: Marlon and Club Heights would be consolidated.)

Money would be used for a Rocky Mountain Jr. High ten-classroom addition, North Ogden Jr. High gymnasium and cafeteria expansion and other smaller construction projects throughout the district.

WHY DO SCHOOLS NEED TO BE REPLACED?
The average age of the schools being replaced is 68 years old. The oldest is 84 years old. These schools lack the safety features, accessibility to the disabled as well as the infrastructure needed for optimal education. In addition, construction costs and interest rates are at an all time low.

WHAT GROWTH IS WEBER SCHOOL DISTRICT EXPERIENCING?
The district has grown by 2,322 students in the past decade and 1,649 since the bond of 2006. We are currently using 78 portable buildings as a temporary solution for overcrowding. Growth is particularly heavy in the northern and western portions of the school district. Bonding will enable the district to better address increased enrollment.

WHAT ABOUT THE AGING SCHOOL IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD?
Weber School District officials are aware that there are other needs in our district. More than half of all schools were built before 1970. An in depth evaluation has been conducted and the schools slated for rebuilding are those in the greatest need of replacement at this time. The construction of additional schools is planned for the near future; however, doing so now would mean having a tax increase associated with the bond.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE BOND IS NOT PASSED?
The schools in our community have needs that must be addressed. Our schools continue to age and construction costs continue to increase. If the initiative did not pass it would be placed on the ballot at a later date, however, the cost to the taxpayer would likely increase.

Bond 2006

Written by

On June 26, 2006 voters said "YES" to a $65 million dollar bond to give Weber School District the go-ahead to replace and upgrade aging school buildings. The district's plan for a new elementary school, an addition to Farr West Elementary, an addition to Hooper Elementary and a remodel at Roy High School started immediately. Future plans involve a new building for North Ogden Elementary, an addition to Valley Elementary, a new building for South Ogden Jr. High and one new additional elementary school.

"Growth is the primary factor for the need for new buildings and additions. As populations grow, obviously needs grow, so that's really what we're looking at," said district facilities director, Drew Wilson. The collaborative effort between the school system and patrons demonstrates leadership, teamwork and vision. "Together we?re facing the challenge head-on."

The new elementary school in Plain City is nearing completion with an opening date scheduled for the fall of 2007. The community of Plain City is buzzing with excitement about the new school and the resources and opportunities it will bring to the area.

The new school is a prototype of West Haven Elementary and Freedom Elementary. The building will consist of 37 classrooms, a media center, gym, cafeteria, office, computer room and an assortment of smaller areas to add flexibility to the environment and curriculum.

Also, additions to Farr West Elementary and Hooper Elementary and the remodel at Roy High School, is well on its way.
